Boyz in the Hood, 1991

Written and directed by John Singleton, Boyz in the Hood not only put the then up-and-coming director on the map but it added a new cultural perspective on topics that were not typically accepted by mainstream audiences. Also, Singleton was nominated for two Academy Awards in 1992, one for Best Director and the other for Best Writing.
